McLaren announced today that its next supercar will be called the 650S and that it will debut during the Geneva Motor Show next month.

The British exotic car builder hasn’t announced specific details about the car yet, but the name seems to suggest that it will offer 650 hp. Meant to slot between the 12C and P1, the car has been referred to up until now as the P15.

After this car, McLaren will have three models in its lineup. After this car launches, the company is expected to release a less expensive fourth-model that will compete with the Porsche 911.
